Product Description

Ocean Commotion was commissioned by WWF and has been performed extensively worldwide.

A trusting Bottlenose Dolphin goes off to play with the humans, despite warnings about fishing nets from cautious Porpoises. Meanwhile the aggressive Great White Shark is trying to find a good school to teach his brainless godson Hammerhead, how to avoid the dreaded hook. In their search they meet many colourful creatures, including Barnacles, Herrings and Tuna Fish, but none of their 'schools' are suitable.

When Bottlenose is captured and taken to a dolphinarium, the sea creatures rush to her rescue. Great White threatens to attack the humans but an intelligent Killer Whale and illusive Blue Whale advocate communication rather than force as the way to appeal to humans.

With a witty rhyming script and beautiful illustrations, eight distinctive songs and dances, Ocean Commotion provides a treasured resource that encourages us all to care for our amazing oceans.

Children of all ages will love the characters and irresistible music in this show, whilst gaining a better understanding of our interaction with the sea and its inhabitants. Suitable for Key Stages 2-3 (ages 7-14). Cross curricular aspects include science, ecology, geography, citizenship, language, literacy, music, dance, design and art.
